[cheering and applause] the european, african-american, asian, latino, everybody near as i could tell, the only thing they had in common the wide array of extremely impressive tattoos. these people get what they're doing. they know they're making america energy dependent. they are -- fighting global warming. they are liberating you from the independence and nevada and california and eventually all america can be self-sufficient and environmentally responsible and create more jobs. and -- [cheering and applause] the president opened new federal land for responsible gas and oil development. he's not against that. he wants us to do all the above. how can we not go after solar and wind power when every ncial study said -- in the capacity to generate electricity from the sun and wi
lost money, didn't a t.a.r.p. and was therefore a lot of people in california, jersey, illinois, schools, businesses. we bought one for ourselves and were able toprice 15,000 to 20,000 jobs in a tremendous cost on the fdic, which is passed back to the banks. so they made a error. we had a gap in the line. we didn't have this gap elsewhere. we had other flaws elsewhere, but we screwed up. that quarter last $5 billion. but it was an error. it was intensely. i should have caught it also. if you have a hundred $50 billion of capital, analysts have a set a record year's third year ago. that's our job. .. only academics and politicians are not allowed. [laughter] >> i will take that last comment personally. [laughter] why don't i open it up at this point? i have one or two at the end i want to close with, but let me open -- wait for the microphone and let us know your name and your affiliation. i see a gentleman right back by the microphone. yes, sir? >> father and your from the monastery in -- in august the economist reported that the roman catholic church spent approximately $171.6
will apply for driver system in california. for those of you on the federal program, should they be able to drive legally in california? peters: i generally don't support having drivers license for people. but the people would be here illegally. if they're here illegally i think they should get the program. >> moderator: after 9/11, congress passed a law, the president signed a law that those who are illegally here should not be getting drivers license. the definition, will redefine these people know there's been legally here and exempt from the law? i think that is something quite clear. there's a lot of people have always said we should get the drivers license. but after 9/11 when the terrorists given driver's license got on that airplane into that show that foreign passports and killed 3000 americans, this is one thing we're all americans ought to be working together come if they will never allow that to happen by having someone undocumented with no documents get a drivers license to get on an airplane. transfer thank you, brian come into the next guy. nice exchange. we had to pause f
to the supreme court is the proposition 8 case out of california and equal protection it loving versus virginia and the sense that can the state to ban this? the doma case, the case is a lot easier legally and politically for the supreme court because, so they are states. i actually think they will take the doma case and they will declare it unconstitutional because it government why the government needs couples who happen to be of if the case goes up in its current form and there are ways that they if it goes up must the 44 states that don't. imagine telling mississippi and alabama and texas oh by the way you have to start performing same-sex marriages or you are in violation of justices are very aware of the think they will deny certiorari on the proposition 8 case which means same-sex marriage approximately 20 to 25% of the people live in states that have i don't think believes that number is going to start to i am not particularly of the debate here governor it's not going to happen anytime it's will be pleased state-by-state level and. >> that please join me in
, texas, california, kansas and las vegas. that's where the money is coming from. >> there you go. >> i spent which you much time looking at fec reports. and actually, one thing about the ads and again, doesn't tell us about the tax exempt groups, and there is evidence that is the main conduit for corporate money and not super pacs. the super pacs have made a country more and more diverse have more of the money in politics that we know about come from a smaller number of very wealthy, mostly male, almost entirely white people and a few states of courses or traditional states where fundraising happens. so it's not a huge surprise, that it's basically as you said marcie think we were the billionaires are. it is kind of astounding when you start to break down just how few people are financing in both parties all of these outfits. and again on the democratic side against liberal wall street people, movie stars, trial lawyers who made tens of millions of dollars in a tobacco settlement is basically where the money comes from and what we caught the nascent democratic super pac conglomerate, w
and local diners and restaurants we sat down. i went to virginia, pennsylvania, kentucky, utah, california and do a surprising how similar the worldviews of these tea partiers were and yet so distinct from my academic colleagues at ucla where i've been getting a phd. for the first one i'd like to make, one thing that sets the tea party apart from many others if they have a very traditional review. so essentially, they have this view america's land of opportunity and that all people regardless of backgrounds can succeed. now this is not to say, but they have this even more so and this is how the answer poll questions and how they help explain a lot of there there policy positions that other people have a hard time understanding. the scope of this. so these are some signs i took at a washington d.c. tea party protest here by the capital. you often see signs like this. don't spread my wealth. spread my work ethic. stop punishing and rewarding failure. this is all part of a common thing. and for this to make sense, i think we should go for some polling data. i'm going to show you some polling
of the ips in washington and we established a relationship with the university of california press for the ability count outrage and similarly a publishing relationship with -- who we co-published a series of looks on the palestinian revolution. we feel that we have made some impact on academia. we feel we have made some impact on the main churches. we feel we have made some impact with the leadership of the minorities, where we have failed totally is with the political elite. we do not have -- we have made absolutely no impression on the political elite. if anything, since i came here in 1976, the situation has actually deteriorated dramatically, much worse, much worse. and i think the reason is, you have a very powerful coalition now. it is not the lobby alone. the lobby is just part of it. i mean, the jewish community is a tremendously gifted community. the faculty of harvard is at least 35% jewish. whether the percentage of the population, jewish is 2.2%. this is an extraordinarily gifted people, extraordinarily gifted. the connection between judaism and the west goes all the w

to baja, california, for thousands and thousands of kilometers, certainly in a nonoptimized way. well, you know, what we learned from this project, what -- if we have all this information from our cities in this case about waste and, you know, what happens to things we throw away, then we can probably redesign as engineers optimize such systems. so we can reduce a lot of efficiencies that you -- inefficiencies that you saw in those traces. another thing that was quite important was all of this data, if it gives us information about what's out there, then it can promote behavioral change. and actually one of the most telling things following the project was somebody who told us, well, you know, i used to drink water in blast you can bottles -- plastic bottles and put the bottles outside my door every day, and the things would disappear. but actually, no, they don't disappear, they go -- [inaudible] and stay there forever, and now because of in the they stopped drinking water in plastic bottles. now, there's a third thing we actually discovered more recently that was quite unexpected. that's
